  • Something I especially enjoy about being a Primary teacher is...

    “…spending my days with young children who experience the world with exquisite curiosity, such a capacity for kindness, and bountiful creativity. Guiding young students has transformed the way I perceive the world and the possibilities of the future. At the heart of Montessori is the recognition of the vast potential of each and every child, and I am grateful, each day, to do this work in our community.”

Paige is a dedicated educator of young children and a passionate advocate for the Montessori method. She has a particular interest in the movement within Montessori communities towards confronting bias, prioritizing anti-racism work, and working towards equity. Paige loves seeing how so much of Dr. Montessori’s work is now being affirmed within the current research in developmental psychology, neuroscience, and education.

In her free time, Paige enjoys making time for physical activity, especially in nature, and spending time with her three young children, who also attend CMS.
